Django Girls events are organized by groups of wonderful volunteers in cities all over the world. Events are always non-profit and free for participants. We DO NOT PAY coaches, speakers or organizers. Attendees don’t need any previous knowledge about programming and there are no age limitations. All attendees need is a laptop and some curiosity!
As of 2020, Django Girls workshops can only be held remotely. This is due to the ongoing Global Pandemic, and allows workshops continue while ensuring the safety of our organisers, volunteers and participants. We will review this decision in 2021, and hope to also allow for in-person workshops as soon as it is safe to do so.
An in-person workshop is any workshop where participants, coaches, and organisers, all meet in the same physical location. Participants can work together in teams and support from coaches is done face-to-face.
These workshops should only be conducted when it is safe to do so, and you may be asked in your application to provide evidence of why you feel this type of worshops is safe, and what, if any, safety measures you will be putting in place.
If you are not sure if it is safe to hold an in-person workshop, you might prefer to organise a remote workshop instead.
A remote workshop is a workshop conducted online, where participants, coaches and organisers are in different physical locations.
This type of workshop may be more suitable in situations where it might not be safe, affordable, or logistically possible to host a workshop in-person, or where difficulties finding sponsorship would be a barrier to running to the workshop in-person. Remote workshops also allow for more flexibility with the location of your attendees and coaches.
Since July 2014, 2206 volunteers organized 965 Django Girls workshops. Join them and bring Django Girls to your city!
Django Girls helped me gain more self-confidence and gave me a boost to keep learning. I’ve created my own blog and then prepared workshops and taught other women to code. Nothing is impossible with this bunch of positive people!— Agata Grdal, organizer of Django Girls Wrocław
